Apex Legends Mobile requirements & price
If you’re interested in playing Apex on your handheld device but are unsure if you’ll be able to run it, make sure you also check out our piece on all the requirements you’ll need to run the game on your phone, including the game’s size.
The game is free-to-play so you won’t have to purchase anything to enjoy the gameplay. However, if you’d like to obtain premium rewards from the battle pass, you will need to spend money in order to do so.
Apex Legends Mobile gameplay
Apex Legends Mobile’s gameplay is inherently similar to the battle royale players know and love, featuring all of the same weapons and mechanics. There are some subtle differences though, such as being able to enter third person.
One thing to note that is important is that Apex Legends Mobile does not feature cross-play or cross-progression, so you don’t have to worry about getting destroyed by those on PC and consoles while on your phone.
Apex Legends Mobile offers players a variety of game modes including:
- Battle Royale
- Classic and new LTMs such as Mini Royale
- Team Deathmatch
Players select from a smaller pool of the main game’s Legends including Bloodhound, Gibraltar, Lifeline, Pathfinder, Wraith, Bangalore, Caustic, Mirage, Octane, and brand new Mobile-first Legend Fade.
This new Legend, Fade, is exclusive to Apex Legends Mobile, with no current plans to bring them to the game on PC and Consoles.
If you’d like to know more about this new Legend, check out our guide on Apex Legends Mobile’s Fade, including his abilities and background story.
A third-person perspective is another feature only available in Mobile, apart from an easter egg players can activate in the PC and console version’s Firing Range.
In the Mobile version, players can switch between third and first-person, depending on their preference. When in third-person, players will get a better view of what’s around them, and the camera will switch back to first when aiming down sights.
Apex Legends Mobile maps
Currently, players only have access to one battle royale map in Apex Legends Mobile, which is the original World’s Edge.
The devs have confirmed that Kings Canyon will become available in the future, perhaps even during the first season for the mobile game.
There are some other maps available for players, such as the Overflow Arenas map from the main game. There are also POIs from Kings Canyon like Artillery that are available in the Team Deathmatch mode for Apex Legends Mobile.
The devs also teased that some new maps will also be “mobile-first,” but, we’ll probably get more information on these later down the line.
Apex Legends Mobile battle pass & seasonal content
Apex Legends Mobile also features seasons with battle passes and challenges. Unlike the console and PC versions of Apex Legends, seasons and battle passes will only be one month long.
There are both paid and free versions of the battle pass and players will be completing daily and weekly challenges in order to progress.
There is also Legend progression in which players can expand the utility of a Legend by equipping perks that give them added benefits, such as faster reload. This is an exclusive feature to Apex Legends Mobile and adds more personalization to the game.
